Today's the Day
Today is Birth Day! I cannot believe it is finally here. My water broke last night at home at 9:30pm. Since I am positive for Group B strep (bacteria that I could pass along to the baby), I had to come right into the hospital and start on IV antibiotics. The good news is that I was able to get two doses in already (they prefer to have at least two on board prior to delivering). The bad news is that I am not in any good contraction pattern, so after nine hours in the hospital and one hour of sleep, I still have not really made any progress. The doctor is going to start Pitocin in a couple hours (once the shift change is complete), then we should be off to the races. Prayers for a successful and safe birth (no C-section please)!
